What a busy but brilliant weekend! Friday we welcomed Johnsons Coaches for a meal on their way up to a walking trip in the lakes. We hope the weather held out for you and that you had a great time! Then on Saturday it was the big one...wasn't exactly the scoreline we wanted but a very good performance (the best I've seen us play in a tournament in my 22 years!!) Thanks to all who came down and we'll see you again on Thursday 8pm for the next big one... England vs Uruguay! Finally yesterday we held a christening and a retirement party! Like we said busy but brilliant! Thanks to all our fantastic guests and we hope to see you again soon! James x

I've just pulled out my favourite (but everyone else's least favourite) joke out of the bag this evening. Discussing the lack of fish jokes in the kitchen I quipped "there's a time and a plaice for that". I'll see you at my next stand up gig! James
